Written by: Space Foundation Editorial Team

BROOMFIELD, Colo., Mar. 23, 2021 — Dr. Jeanette Domber, Civil Space program manager, Ball Aerospace, was named a 2021 American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) Fellow, a distinction conferred upon individuals in recognition of their notable and valuable contributions to the arts, sciences or technology of aeronautics and astronautics.

“Jeanette has worked at the leading-edge of structural and optical engineering for more than 20 years, making important contributions to several of NASA’s most important space science missions,” said Dr. Makenzie Lystrup, vice president and general manager, Civil Space, Ball Aerospace. “Her contributions have led to significant advancements in space system design that have enabled a deeper understanding of our universe and are befitting of the AIAA Fellow distinction.”

Domber has been at Ball for 15 years and has played roles in numerous programs, including the Imaging X-ray Polarimetry Explorer (IXPE), DARPA’s Membrane Optic Imager Real-Time Exploitation (MOIRE) program and the Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph repair for the Hubble Space Telescope.  She is currently the deputy program manager for Ball’s efforts on the Wide Field Instrument (WFI) for NASA’s Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope. She earned a bachelor’s in aerospace engineering from Case Western Reserve University and a master’s and Ph.D. in aerospace engineering sciences from the University of Colorado at Boulder.

The induction ceremony for the class of 28 AIAA Fellows and three Honorary Fellows will take place later this year.
